Season of Service

January 16th - April 23rd 2016

Let's Serve Our Schools!

We are a month and a half into this year's Season of Service and we love seeing movement of churches serving the needs of their communities through local schools. Season of Service is running from January 16th - April 23rd 2016 and will culminate with a weekend to weekend service blitz from April 16-23rd 2016 called Serve Our Schools. Why a focused service week? There's something incredible about churches working together in a specific joint effort that demonstrates to every person and neighborhood that Christians are alive and well and wanting to see communities transformed for the better. Similar efforts in collaborative service are happening in cities all across California with the Love Our Cities initiative on April 23rd. If you are planning a service event for Serve Our Schools, please let us know about it by emailing your plans to megan@serveunited.us

Stories of Service: My City Encouragement Cards

Thousands of young people from the Sacramento region and beyond gathered at Capital Christian Center on February 18th - 20th for the My City Youth Conference. Serve United was there to share the vision of Every School Partnership and to allow students to write encouragement cards to teachers, students in elementary schools struggling to learn to read and refugee students starting school in America for the first time. Many students wrote heart-felt messages which will be delivered over the coming weeks. Thank you, students for your simple act of encouragement and love!
